Paid £2.60 into bank account via Post Office today, then transferred to mortgage.

Payoff date still Aug 2017, but saved £4.29 interest:rotfl:

Do this at least once a week. Woman in PO v confused!;)

I have to do this as I can't find a suitable mortgage pig. Want to pay off early to retire to Spain, but can't find appropriate 'pig'. Any suggestions?

    Think I can beat that. When I manage to get a £1 in either 5p/2p/1p I use that to over pay my mortgage :rotfl:

    It only happens every few months.

    As has been said every little helps.

    I must admit that seems like an awful lot of fuss to me! Wouldn't it be a lot simpler to keep the money in your purse for day-to-day spending, but cut down on the cash you take out of the bank account so that you can do an overpayment once a month without the hassle of going to the Post Office?

    Wow! When you put it like that, you can really see how the small amounts add up to something pretty significant. If I left £2.60 in my current account at the end of the month, assuming that's all I had left in there, I'd gain nothing and end up spending it on some snack to nibble on while watching DVDs. If I just transferred it to my mortgage, It'd be like someone gave me £4.29. AND I'd still have the £2.60, because it'd be in the bricks and mortar.
    May all your dots fall silently to the ground.

    If you Join pigsback one of there bits of merchandise is a plastic pink pig. Not as big or good looking as the ones that Martin had on make me rich.

    But would do at a push.
